Just my .02,...but if you have difficulty pulling back the slide on a semi auto pistol, maybe you can try a technique, I have seen taught to women shooters who had the same problem and it worked most of the time. Now I don't know which is your dominate hand, but for sake of explanation lets say you are right handed.

Try holding the pistol in your right hand, pointing the muzzle down towards the ground out in front of you. Grip the slide with your left hand like you normally would if you were pulling the slide back, however while tightly holding the slide, push forward with your right hand. I know at first read this may not seem like there is any difference in pulling or pushing, but if you actually try it, it should work. At least that has been my experience. Generally It takes less effort to push than it does to pull. If that does not work, I would suggest a good wheel gun.

Hope it helps!

Depending on firearm though, pushing forward on the majority won't fully seat the brass preventing the extractor to move forward of the rim adding precious seconds to bring into ready

We who are ready will survive for we are mentally equipped to do so
